Overview
More
The Wilkinson's were true pioneers of the Australian winemaking industry. Despite two earlier ventures in Australia, the Wilkinson family returned after the brothers Frederick and John had studied winemaking in France and Germany. In 1866 the family acquired the present site of the Audrey Wilkinson vineyard. Living in tents, they cleared the land and planted vines which were sourced from the MacArthur Onslow property. By the early 1900s, Audrey Wilkinson collected awards around Australia for his Hock, claret and fortified wines. Large quantities were exported to London. Audrey committed to leading edge technology which, at the end of the 19th century, included open cement fermenters and steam powered crushers and hoppers. It was here the Audrey Wilkinson legacy was born.

People make mistakes and that is understandable. But what disappointed me the most was the lack of management’s ownership of their mistake and the curt response I was given. My family bought 12 moscatos and took advantage of the buy 12 get 1 free deal....More

They do have a restaurant I would ring them to book as it is s very popular winery with spectacular views. We had a light tapas style meal with our wine tasting but they have a great reputation so lunch should be good
